[applause]. [applause]. >> . >> mike: thank you, thank you everybody. thank you very much. and welcome to huckabee, from the fox studios in new york city. by the way, thanks to you, we continue to be the number one rated show on the weekend in cable news. thank you for watching it and making us the number one show and thank you, the one person in the audience who is left (applause) >> well, it's clearly been a very tough few days for americans, especially our military, with the tragic shooting in fort hood, texas that's left 13 dead and dozens wounded. we're going to be paying tribute to them later in the show. but first, you just saw him issue a stern warning. is this a man you don't want to
mess with? chuck norris is here on our show. [applause]. also, would you want the federal government telling you how to raise your kids? how about an international court dictating what u.s. courts can do with juveniles, constitutional lawyer michael ferris, tells us why international health care isn't the only thing you need to be concerned about and in an exclusive former planned parenthood abby johnson wants once worked for abortions and what made her quit? we'll find out. ann gillian joins us, sharing her story and an inspirational song. we have a wonderful show for you. don't go anywhere or chuck will come and get you. [applause] let me tell you something you may not know. bill clinton was right, oh, i know that shocks people to hear a republican like me say that,
but even when i disagreed with bill clinton, i always enjoyed a very decent personal relationship with him and frankly, still do. as they say in the mafia, our disagreements were never perm, just business. bill clinton wasn't right about everything, but there was a telling moment during the campaign of 2008 when in a moment of unrehearsed candor, he burst out with a statement that has proven to make him right. >> give me a break. this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale i've ever seen. >> mike: well, you know, this weekend, president obama and nancy pelosi are strong arming the members of congress to vote on a bill that's over 2000 pages long. most members of congress haven't read it and they don't understand it. for them to say that it's going to give us all free health care and not just raise the deficit, that's a big fairy tale. you'll pay taxes to cover the costs for three years before you even get benefits and that's like paying rent for three years before you get to move into your
apartment. you promise that it won't bust the budget. that's a big fairy tale. you're told that it isn't about forcing us to pay for abortions, but provisions in the bill do in fact insist that abortion be covered. promises to the contrary, a big fairy tale. we were promised an open process that would be broadcast on c-span, instead the entire thing happened behind locked doors, a big fairy tale. we're told it would help people with cancer, but you have to wait six months without coverage before you can get into the high risk pool and by then you could be in the dead pool, a big fairy tale. we were promised there would be time to read it and ask questions, no new taxes on small businesses and it wouldn't ration the care that you get, a big fairy tale. oh, there's so much more, but in this fairy tale, we don't live happily ever after. in this fairy tale, the big bad wolf does eat us.
>> give me a break. this whole thing is the biggest fairy tale i've ever seen. >> yep, bill clinton was right. and it's time that we tell congress that if they push this down our throats when the majority of americans don't want it, they need to make sure they take a good long look at the christmas decorations at the capitol this year, we the people plan to make sure it's the last christmas they're looking at as members of congress. that's no fairy tale, that's my view and you can contact me with yours. contact me at mike huckabee.com and click on the fox news link and links to make contact with the members of the house and senate, call mail or write them today. i've made it easy for you, put the links on website and find the cities i'll be visiting to sign copies of my new book, a simple christmas. [applause] >> we told you you better be
watching. that was at the beginning of the show, for your sake, i hope you're listening. he's thought to be the biggest and baddest, but one of the nicest men i know. joining us with the officially approved facts chuck norris, ladies and gentlemen, chuck norris. [applause]. how you doing, chuck? >> i'm doing great, thanks. >> good to see you. >> i was just talking about all of these folks who love you out here. and do i. i was just talking about the health care bill and i know you're not a big fan of this house health care bill at all. no, not a fan of it at all. >> i you could get your hand on it. i think you could do something with it. >> be great to choke it out. >> mike: well, if the health care bill was a karate board, what do you think you might do to the health care bill? would you-- >> well, maybe something like this here, right there and maybe
just go-- (applaus (applause) >> now, what do you think of the health care bill. >> mike: i'm not a big fan of it either, but i'm not chuck norris. you're going to become chuck norris because you're going it break a board, too. >> mike: oh, come on. >> now you break the health care bill. >> mike: what if i break my hand. >> you won't break it, go tu it. just think, go all the way through. >> mike: you almost did it (laughter) >> okay. >> you know, if i break my hand i'll never speak to you again. it's chuck norris, what am i going to do about it? >> there you go. >> mike: oh! oh, have a seat, chuck. oh, we had a little fun. you have a brand new book that's sort after collection of all things chuck norris.
tell me how in the world did this chuck norris joke thin get started, unbelievable. >> it started about four years ago, some college kid sent me several chuck norris facts and on my e-mail and i'm reading them and laughing, and basically they're pretty funny and so, anyway, from there the college kids caught onto it and it started going around to all the universities and colleges and filtered down to the high schools and down to the middle schools and then went worldwide and getting the chuck norris facts from africa and everywhere and the military picked up on it and actually that's how i got to iraq to visit the troops in iraq, 'cause they were begging the commanders to get me over there so the commander in iraq came over and would you visit with the troops, they're bugging me to death. i'll be glad to as long as i get to travel to camps and bases where the celebrities and media don't go on the iranian border and go down and meet with them.
i'll be glad to. 's what i did, visited 17 different bases and camps and shook hand with over 20,000 troops over there. >> mike: wow. >> anyway-- >> that's fantastic, a lot of handshaking. >> every time i'd shake a hand they'll tell me a chuck norris fact and then go to outdoor commode here is chuck norris facts on the wall there. it was crazy so when i got back home i started thinking about it because i write-- i'm a syndicated writer and writing about the problems we have in our country today and in my last book, dealing with all the situation, i thought i've got to lighten up, and anyway, i wrote the 101 chuck norris facts and amazingly my eight-year-old twins as i'm coming through the-- there's 500,000 facts out there so i'm trying to filter them out and my twins are coming up and saying, dad, i have one. and they'd-- i say 0 that's nice and keep writing. finally my eight-year-old son comes up, dad, i've got one.
what is it, son? chuck norris eats bullets for breakfast, watch out when he burps! i says, i like that. so i wrote it in there. and then my daughter of course, then she starts in, hey, i got-- so she came up and i ride motorcycles, harleys and she says daddy, chuck norris rides a motor without the cycle. i said i'm putting that one in there, too, those are in the book. >> mike: in addition-- some are just hilarious and i told one on "fox & friends" earlier this weekend that superman wears chuck norris pajamas to bed, but in addition to the funny things and the fun chuck norris stories there's a lot of good just points of wisdom. just things that you and your wife gina put in the book that are encouragement. >> inspirational. after each fact, i tell a story and the first one, you know, is that chuck norris was bit by a cobra and after five days of excruciating pain, the cobra
died. so anyway, i tell a story when i was filming walker, texas ranger. a scene i had to pick up a rattle snake, and so the snake wrangler had it there and i sneak up and grab it by the back of the neck and pick it up and do the whole scene and now the director wants a take two, so i go up to grab the snake the second time and he's ready this time and as i grab him he bites me on the hand and blood starts spurting out on my hand and the director takes off running. and so i'm looking at it, as the blood's coming out and i say to the snake wrangler, now, you think there's any venom in there and he says, well, you probably go to the hospital and get checked. so i did, but i was fine. these are stories-- >> the snake did die after he bit you? no, i wish he had of, but he didn't. >> mike: we are going to come back and get some serious stuff. the book is called the official chuck norris fact book and serious stuff about your program
kick start. and talk to chuck about serious stuff. chuck has received criticism about the intention of the health care bill ap the last couple of months he pointed out how the government wants to ins flues parents how to raise their kids. turns out he's right. they'll prove it, don't go away. we will be back, don't go away.
>> we're back with chuck norris and joined by michael ferris, founder of the home school legal defense association and chancellor of patrick henry college. glad to have both of you guys with us today. just before the break we had talked about health care bills, problems with itment and you wrote an article as you did every week as the world net daily and this got a lot of controversy because you made the allegation because in this heb bill that there is a provision where the federal government can kind of get into our homes. >> and had my attorney help me decipher what the bill was about, it's like reading a legal form and when he started explaining that, i says, you know, that's ludicrous and i
wrote this article about it and it was the most read article, i've been writing over two years, the most read article i've had to date read and people were concerned about it the government having the right to come into our home and raise our children. >> mike: what was the basis upon which they could do that. i think that need to be clarified. knock on the door and say we're from the government. >> they say that they have to check and make sure that your children-- you raise the children the way they feel would be the proper way to raise the children. >> mike: under the guise of health care. michael, tell us your organization is one of the ones who did the research in health care bill and basically said hey, we've looked at this and tell us what the provision was and how the people sort of got duped and didn't understand it was there. >> chuck norris was absolutely right in his analysis of the bill. >> michael, chuck norris is always right (laughter) >> just to clarify.
but go ahead, i'm sorry. >> he was even more right than normal. the provision of the bill, the way the federal government often does it they putman dates on the states. they require states to receive federal funding to have these programs where the federal government says we're going to come into your home and teach you how to parent your children. the government doesn't know how to balance a budget, it doesn't manage its own life very well, it's going to teach us how to raise children and come into families with young children, moms who are pregnant and come in and offer this government oriented service how to raise children which they simply don't know what they're-- >> how do they approach that. there are going to be skeptics saying where is that in the bill, tell me how i know that's true? >> well, you can google the relevant language, if you look about health information for young children and families, and you know, a 2000 page bill and they keep changing the seriously numbers on it. i looked on the way up here today. the current version of the pelosi bill, exactly the same way. it's interesting, they have the
word voluntary in the preamable of the bill, but not in the text. in the actual text of the bill they put a mandate on the states to offer this program and they don't tell the states you cannot make it mandatory. so, from the past that i dealt with in social services agencies and so on, the federal government requires the states to do something and when the states require, are required, they turn around and force families into their program. >> what will they say that this is actually to make sure that children are properly fed and getting good night's sleep and is that how it's done? >> good afternoon is necessary, preventive health care, you know, we want to make sure that children aren't juts taken to the hop, but they are raised properly so that they're not sick and all of this. >> and thinking they're going to try to eliminate home schooling, try to eliminate charter schools, want to put them all into a public school system and you know, and the thing is we home school our children and you know, and the thing is that it's proven that home schooled children are much better
educated than, you know, than ones in the public school system. >> mike: the only kid in my state that only scored a perfect 3200 on the sat score, was home schooled kids. it was dramatic and a lot of people in the sort of education establishment say, oh, no one ever from any of our other schools had done that. >> unfortunately, the movement across the world has been to curtail home schooling and the whole socialist mindset is that we know how to better raise your families where there's education, health care or anything and the socialist mindset that's taken over washington is-- we can do it and you can't do it without us. my experience has been that a lot of times, liberals and people with the social views, they're sincere and they honestly believe, they are they're not bad evil people and in their hearts think they're being helpful. idea that government is better. i want to continue this discussion when we come back after the break. we've got to open up an issue
that's huge and maybe beyond big and if you're concerned that the federal government telling you how to raise your kid is bad enough. how would you feel if your orders came from europe? our friend from overseas think we ought to be following their rules when it comes to punishing juvenile criminals among other things. and we'll be talking about that after the break.
>> this week the preek supreme court is going to hear arguments on two cases involving men who committed crime under the age of 18 and will rule whether or not it's constitutional for juveniles who commit heinous crimes to be sentenced to life without parole. michael and ferris back to talk about this. and some of these cases are
based on pretty, very, tough stories. just give us an example. >> one of the cases involved a beautiful that raped a woman in her 70's, a prior case who was a juvenile death penalty case, three teenagers grabbed a woman and threw her off a bridge, and murdered her at random and these are the kind of cases, hard facts, but harder than the facts are the law that are being made, whether or not we're going to use international law in the cases because in the juvenile death penalty case the supreme court said international law is a guiding light for us and in this case, that's coming up on monday, they're trying to decide whether or not international law is binding. if they've made the decision, unprecedented in the history of the united states, to use international law instead of our own constitution as the basis to adjudicate a case. >> exactly right. amnesty international and a bunch of organizations filed a friend of the court brief before the supreme court arguing that because of customary international law, the united states was bound already to
follow the u.n. convention on the rights of the child that we haven't ratified as a country. on behalf of 16 congressmen, i filed a brief opposing that, saying, they've got the international law wrong. more importantly, american law should govern america. >> so many of our people-- >> yeah, yeah! (applause) >> so many of our people are lost souls in our country and you know, the thing is, we have to find a system who help them them on the right path. that's what the kick start program is about, working with the risk children and teaching them in the inner city schools to gep hit the kids on the right path and raising self-esteem and instilling that discipline that the kid are lacking. that's the case, they're lost souls and trying to make a mark, but the mark is in a devastating wait. like the kids in columbine, a prime example of kids that are lost and needed gieuidance to g them on the right path.
and martial arts, he was growing up in a dysfunctional family and alcoholic father and martial arts, kick start is a great program to me. >> mike: a different approach if we were getting the kid and preventing this kind of mindset. >> prevention is a key thing, mike. >> mike: but now we're looking at a situation where it may be too late to prevent something and when we have kids who are adjudicated, applying international law, michael, tell me in a heartbeat, what is the big deal? why should we be so concerned that the courts would reach out and pull an international judicial standard in to american law? >> article 1, section one of the u.s. constitution says all law is made by the constitution of the united states, by the congress of the united states. we fought the revolutionary war over the idea that americans would make law for america and the most important thing in any legal system is who makes your law. if the supreme court makes the law for us, if congress makes the law for us, it's best when our elected officials are making
the law. the way it's intended. not judges, not the u.n., not bureaucrats in europe. americans make american law. >> and it's dangerous, before we go away for the break, i just want to make the point that if we ever open a door to international law, a lot of laws ruled that parent don't have the right to apply certain forms of discipline. that could be used as a point to say to american parents, these are the parameters in which you can raise your kids. that's pretty bold. >> absolutely correct. under the u.n. convention, rights of the child, not only you can't spank your children, you can't teach them jesus is the only way to god. you have to teach them it will tolerance and the u.n.'s definition is all roads to god are equally. we want to have religious freedom for every religion, we don't believe that every religion is equally true and we're not going to be forced by the government to teach that every religious is equally true. >> mike: thank you both today.
a pleasure to have you both with us. coming up in a huckabee exclusive. she worked at planned parenthood helping women end their pregnancies, not anymore. we are going to ask abby johnson why she left the abortion industry and what she's doing now. that's coming up next. left ty and what she is doing now. that's coming up next.

of that statement. they do prevent some things, they prevent birth not illnesses. there's no illness involved in a pregnancy. illness means you're sick, you're not particular when you're having a baby. . >> no. >> mike: when you were at planned parenthood did you find the focus was on health care and prevention of illness? >> no, it's prevention of-- i mean, a lot of it is prevention of pregnancy and that is why i got into it. >> mike: that's why you first got into it. >> why i first got involved. >> mike: a nonintended pregnancy. >> right, why i absolutely got involved with it, but i soon found that one of their goals was to make money and the way they make money is to increase the number of abortions they do. >> mike: you were working, actually, helping and assisting in an abortion and you saw on an ultrasound the abortion process. tell me what did you see when
the ultrasound was running and the abortion was taking place? >> well, i was called into the room to assist during the procedure and it was actually an ultrasound guided abortion procedure which is not that common in planned parenthood health centers, because it's a longer type of abortion procedure. and planned parenthood centers are trying to do as many procedures a day as they can, and so they're not going to take a lot of time for each procedure. but for whatever reason this physician did decide to do an ultrasound guided procedure on this particular woman so i was called in to help and my job was to hold the ultrasound probe on this woman's abdomen so that the physician could actually see the uterus on the ultrasound screen. and when i looked at the screen, i saw a baby on the screen and she was about 13 weeks pregnant
at the time and i saw a full side profile. so, i saw face to feet on the ultrasound machine and i saw the probe going into the woman's uterus and at that moment i saw the baby moving and trying to get away from the probe. >> mike: moving away from the-- oh, my god. >> yes, and i thought, it's fighting for its life and i thought, its life. it's alive. >> mike: until that moment, abby, had it appeared to you that you were able to use words like fetus and tissue, very different than when you saw the form after child recognizable. >> that it was alive, uh-huh. >> mike: what did you do. did you say anything at that moment to the doctor? >> no, i mean, my mind was racing and my heart was beating
so fast and i just was thinking, oh, my gosh, make it stop. and then all of a sudden, i mean, it was just over, just in a blink of an eye and i just saw the-- i just saw the baby just literally just crumble and it was over and i-- i just drop the ultrasound probe and then i realized, oh, my gosh i dropped the probe and i scrambled and i put the ultrasound probe back in place and so many things were going through my mind and i was thinking about my daughter who is three and i was-- i was thinking about the ultrasound i had of her and just thinking how perfect that ultrasound was when she was 12 weeks and in the womb and i was thinking, what am i doing? what, what am i doing here? and i could just-- i had one woman on this woman's belly and i was thinking there
was life in here and now there's not and-- >> you literally were holing your hand on top of her, on top of her belly at that point and realized that what was underneath that hand once, a moment ago was life and it's gone. >> uh-huh. >> mike: my gosh. when you were faced with that, by the way, did the woman see any of this? did she have access to see the screen at all? >> no, she was sedated. >> mike: people never really see what's happening then? >> no. >> mike: i can't help, but believe if they saw that, that they might be running out of those clinics. >> yeah, absolutely. if clinic workers saw what was happening on that screen, they would be running out of those clinics. this is what the abortion industry does not want their workers to see. they don't want their workers to see what's actually happening during an abortion. that's why planned parenthood doesn't do-- that's why so many of the abortion industries do not do
ultrasound guided abortion procedures they don't want people to see what's happening in the woman's womb. >> mike: i think about what you've gone through and you must have walked away that day, saying, oh this is is not what i want to spend the rest of my life doing as a career. what was the next step you took. you were the executive director of that planned parenthood clinic and really you didn't know what was going on in the back rooms in that standpoint. >> i went home that day and i had made the decision that day that that was it and i went home and i talked to my husband about it and i mean, my husband's a teacher and we have a daughter and so we're dependent on two incomes and so, we just decided that i would go back to work and i would just be really looking for another job and i knew that i had two weeks until we were going to be doing surgical abortions again, so i had two weeks to find another job and so i went the first week was pretty
uneventful and the week next weekend came and that monday came and i was just sitening my office and i was crying and i had the door closed and i was just thinking, where am i going to go, what am i going to do. i don't want to be here. >> mike: what did the people at the clinic say, this is it, i'm leaving. >> nobody knew what was happening. i couldn't talk to anybody at the clinic because they didn't know what was going on in my heart. they didn't understand what was happening and now, now that they do know, planned parenthood put a restraining order out on me now that they know i'm working with pro-life movement. >> mike: i wish planned parenthood would put a restraining order on themselves and stop the horrible procedures they're doing every day. abby, thank you forks you have remarkable courage for sharing your remarkable story. i hope it's a reminder we don't have to just listen to words, we
need to look at the actions behind it. what a wonderful story, abby johnson. >> thank you. >> mike: coming up, actress, singer, motivational singer, ann gillian. a beautiful lady sharing her story, a fight with cancer and has an important message for women everywhere. you'll love ann gillian, she's a sweetheart. you'll be right back with me. don't go away. ale nt
>> my next guest has been in over 25 films and game to national prominence for her role in the television sit com, it's a living. but it was her real life role as a cancer survivor that got her the golden globe in the made for tv movie, the ann gillian story. ladies and gentlemen, please welcome ann gillian. women here. i've had a wonderful day getting to visit with you today.
i've admired you for so many years because of the courage when you were diagnosed with cancer, you told the world and explained what was going on and you're an inspiration to so many women across the world and i think saved their lives by being so open about it. >> thank you, thank you very much. you know, you try to do what you can. and i believe that being on tv, you become a friend. you're invited into the home and as a result, when this happened to me, when i got the diagnosis, i felt it was incumbent upon me to try to spread the word and to let people that that you have to take care of yourself. that early detection is your very best protection and swift medical sex is important, too, which also leads me to a bit of confusion that happened this past october because as you know, october is breast cancer awareness month. so, as often happens, sometimes there's some confusion out
there. and a doctor put a quote out. i don't believe it's in its entirety. as a member of the american cancer society, i'd like to clear up confusion. it was mammograms, he said that mammograms were overexaggerated, since 1985 when i was first diagnosed with breast cancer. aas a mechlt american cancer society have always been talking about the limitations that are there as well as successes. and the successes, so far, outweigh the limitations, yes. please (applause) >> if you were to ask this same doctor, if you were to ask him are you suggesting then we do not have mammograms? i'm sure that the same doctor would tell you absolutely not. i'm not suggesting that. because mammograms are still the very best screen that we can have for breast cancer, it doesn't work 100% for all 100%
of the women that take it, but the percentage that walk away, if they find something and take care of it, and then walk away having happy, healthy productive lives is impressive. highly impressive. i wouldn't be sitting here today. talking with you and talking to this fine audience if i had not had that mammogram. so, ladies, continue to have your mammograms. [applause] >> please have trust in the american cancer society because they strive to provide great information and it continually evolves because the researchers are always looking for a different answers. how can we make it better. how can we make this work better for all of us, so please have trust, have faith in them and do what you have to do for yourself. because, as the commercial says, you're worth it, okay? >> and the diagnosis of cancer, particularly breast cancer for a woman is frightening enough. what gave you the ability to
face that diagnosis, the surgery, and not only to personally persevere, but then to be able to open your life up and let others in so that you could encourage them. i mean, you were a survivor. that's been 25 years. you are a survivor and you conquered more than just cancer, but life. so, what's the word to those women out there who are scared to death they're going to hear the word cancer? >> faith, love and a good sense of humor. know that he didn't promise us that it was going to be easy, but he did promise us that he's going to be with us every step of the way. [applause] >> so, what i tell you is eight out of ten lumps are noncancerous, do not go in to check yourself up and think that you're looking for disease, but go in and check yourself up to assure your wellness and my mother, who is a good
old-fashioned lithuanian mother use today say if you find early, you can fix. >> mike: one of the things i wanted to have you on the show for next week is going to be veterans day, we honor our veterans and many people don't know that the first person that brought the song "wind beneath my wings" to america was ann gillian, you did it on a bob hope special and would you go around and sing it as you did on the special to our troops? a powerful song it is and i don't know anyone i would rather have sing it than ann gillian on our show today. her words are inspiring, wait until you hear her singing, when we come back, ann gillian is going to perform "wind beneath my wings" when we come back.

prayers and our focus should be on the fact that every day people put on uniforms to serve this country, they often go to places halfway around the world whose names they can't even pronounce to fight battles for us. but when they come home, and they're at home on their base, we want them to be safe and at peace. that peace was disturbed this week. we need to pray that that peace would be restored, not only at fort hood, but every place that a soldier, a sailor, an airman or a member of the coast guard calls home. to them, we say, thank you, and god bless you.
